A’s lineup vs. O’s (updated)

The Oakland Athletics activated outfielder Yoenis Cespedes from the disabled list today and designated Casper Wells for assignment.

The Toronto Blue Jays selected Wells, the Towson University alum, off waivers from the Seattle Mariners on April 10. The A’s purchased him from the Blue Jays on April 22.

Now he’s out there again.

The Orioles had some interest in Wells earlier this year. He’s out of minor league options, which is why he keeps hitting the open market more than fastballs.

Meanwhile, the Athletics changed their original lineup. Jed Lowrie has been scratched. Here’s the new one:

For the Athletics
Coco Crisp CF
John Jaso C
Seth Smith DH
Yoenis Cespedes LF
Brandon Moss 1B
Josh Donaldson 3B
Chris Young RF
Eric Sogard 2B
Adam Rosales SS

Bartolo Colon RHP

Colon is 7-1 with a 1.94 ERA over his last nine starts dating back to last season. He’s walked five batters in 60 1/3 innings over that stretch.
